Series 1: Max Werner Papers, 1930-1951
Collection Description & Creator Information
Consists of selected papers of Werner. Included are notes, outlines, and chapter drafts for a projected book on the international military, political, and strategic problems arising from World War II and the post-war period, positing the thesis that in the event of a world conflict with atomic weapons neither Russia nor the United States could win. With a working title of THE NEW BALANCE OF POWER, most of the material concerns military issues. Also present are copies of his syndicated column (1948-1949), "The Course of the World," articles, bibliographies, and a large file of newspaper clippings used as source material.
Materials are arranged roughly in the following order: syndicated newspaper columns; THE NEW BALANCE OF POWER--outlines, chapter drafts; articles, notes, drafts; war files clippings; miscellaneous notes and clippings.
